Federer too good for Murray

Roger Federer beat Andy Murray in straight sets to win his fifth consecutive US Open title.

Like I wrote yesterday I didn't Murray to give Federer a lot of problems despite beating Rafael Nadal but it was a good effort for him to reach the final and now he has grand slam final experience.

Federer in his fifth consecutive final was the first to settle and he easily won the first set. Murray came back in the second but Federer drew on his experience to win it and the final set was the easiest for him.

This win means that Federer has now won a grand slam title this year but I think he deserves it after having playing some very good tennis throughout the tournament.

If he wasn't at the top of his game I think he would have lost to Novak Djokovic in the semis but he brushed him aside and I also think he could have beaten Nadal if he had reached the final.

This is Federer's 13 grand slam win and therefore he only needs one more to equal Pete Sampras' 14.

I think its possible for him to overtake Sampras and he could equal Sampras as early as the Australian Open in January next year.

Federer's win also means that the current three top players have all won at least one grand slam title this year and it could be interesting next year especially if Murray continues to improve.
